Here at Cornwall Models & Promotions we are excited to promote our models individually through – Model of the Week!
Here, we’ll be showcasing a different star of the show, every week.
This week’s model was selected for different reasons than our previous winner, Lara (click here to read Lara’s story).
It takes something special to make it in this feature as we are very selective over the models that represent us, and personality matters just as much as appearance.
Let’s talk about our winner: Waide, age 21.
Waide is already this year alone is on the cast of Netflix Sex Education as well as BBC One’s Poldark.
She has also modelled for Hidden Gems Jewellery in Devon, an incredible business supporting people develop and build employment skills by creating and selling jewellery and other handcrafted products from recycled and reclaimed metals.
She is the perfect example of how believing in yourself and never giving up your dreams is the best way to overcome your fears and grow. Her words – “You only have one life so live it to the full “
Here’s what Waide had to say about her story and journey through the massively competitive world of acting and modelling:
“I don’t usually go by quotes; however, I do like this one: “difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations”. I like it because it really does apply to acting and modelling. The industry is so tough but If you really go for it and put 100% into it, then great things can happen. Then you may be able to turn your dreams into a career.
I have had a few enquiry’s recently for more SA work and I did attend the Doc Martin auditions. Hopefully I will get a part in it but if not, then there will be other opportunities.
I absolutely love modelling and acting. I love it because it has massively boosted my confidence and enabled me to actually like who I am. I used to be incredibly anxious and quiet but acting/modelling helped me to overcome that. If you enjoy something and it brings you happiness then you should do it. Don’t listen to negativity and don’t let other people bring you down. I am only 5ft 1 and was told I would never succeed in modelling but I chose to ignore it. Instead I chose to prove them wrong. You only have one life so live it to the full. “
